After 3 and a half years at Majestic I have landed at my old stomping ground, Chelmsford. My wine tastes tend to change with the seasons. Give me a rich and oaky Rioja or Chardonnay in the winter, and a well-balanced Riesling or lightly chilled Pinot Noir in the summer. Anything with Appassimento on the label usually finds its way into my wine rack and I'm a firm believer that there is always an excuse for Champagne!
Jonny Assistant Manager
I'm a big fan of jokes and puns so if you have any Carmenere and tell me! Like the big oaky Chardonnays, love the buttery biscuit base.
Gill Trainee Manager
Hello, I'm new here at Majestic wine after working in other sectors of retail. Purple wines, the big Zinfandel and Appassimento wines are my go to. Looking forward to studying for the WSET Level 3 so ask me lots of questions to test my ever growing knowledge.

Another new new savvy b?! Heck.

This fresh Sauvignon Blanc is made by Origin Wines. Origin was established in 2002 and has grown leaps and bounds since. Winemaker Debbie Thompson joined the the Origin team last year and has helped craft this fantastic Sauvignon Blanc.

To make this wine, she has taken parcels of fruit from a range of sights across the Western Cape and has carefully blended them.

The result is a balanced and refreshing wine with crisp flavours of citrus, apple and herbs. Partner this wine with seasonal salads and pan fried salmon for that extra special touch.

£7.99 mix any six!

Our Parcel Series wines showcase a fantastic range of unique tipples from world-renowned wineries.

We’ll start off with what you could say is the most well known region on these shores. From the other side of the world in New Zealand, Marlborough. You may just know these wines as tropical fruity masterpieces, but there’s a lot more to this famous region that sits to the North of the South Island. Three main Subregions make up Marlborough. Wairau Valley, Southern Valley and Awatere Valley. These three sub-regions have slight differences that make subtle changes to the style of wine made in each. With heavy influence from the Pacific Ocean, north facing vineyards to soak up as much daytime sun heat as possible, the range of Sauvignon Blancs you can buy is far wider than you might imagine.

This Parcel Series Sauvignon Blanc from Marlborough has lively tones of tropical fruit and lemon citrus. The barrel fermentation adds a slight creaminess and smoke characteristic.

We’ll head even further south now towards the near bottom of the South Island, the region Central Otago. Famous for its Gold Rush in the 1860s, this stunning mountainous area now hosts some of the lowest latitude vineyards in the world, only contested by Argentina.  Once the gold dried up, a new type of gold was planted. Vineyards started to make an appearance in the 1950s. One of the most distinctive features of Central Otago as a wine region is its marginal continental climate, with very hot summers and cold winters, along with hot days and very cool nights, these harsh parameters help produce some of the finest Pinot Noir in the Country. With very dry summers the mountainous soils are very dry so the vines stress a lot searching for water. This means they don’t spend hard earned energy on creating much greenery and put all their effort into making juicy and tasty grapes.

This stunning Parcel Series Pinot Noir from Central Otago has a silky smooth texture, with a rich fruity taste followed by a complex and spicy bouquet.

An alcohol-free beer worth drinking. Perfect for Sober October.

Lucky Saint is a special alcohol free beer. Being told it wasn’t possible to have one tasting just as good as a regular beer, and may as well just go to making fizzy drinks. Even with these remarks the founder Luke Boase was not put off and strived to making his idea a reality. Homework consisted of learning all about non-alcoholic beer and diving into the world of the science behind brewing. After a year studying in Germany, Luke finally found a brewer who shared his ideas and passion.

After a full year in development, the finest ingredients were sourced, own yeast created and every step of the brewing process tailored to make the best non-alcoholic beer. Here we are  with the tasty Lucky Saint

Lucky Saint is a lager that’s satisfyingly fruity with a refreshing, crisp citrus finish. It’s also unfiltered allowing for maximum flavour without the alcohol.

2021 Harvest is well underway for the Northern Hemisphere
With help from our very own Ashleigh the Harvest at New Hall Vineyards has begun. First up from Ashleigh’s two day dive into the vineyard side of wine she helped pick the grape Huxelrebe. A small but mighty, high yielding, early ripening variety predominantly used for sweet wines in Germany. Here it brings zesty acidity to still white wines.
Second up for New Hall Vineyards harvest is the Bacchus variety which is fast becoming one of England's flagship grape varieties. These Bacchus vines are only 4 years old, which is incredibly young in the winemaking world, especially when you look to places like Spain with 100+ year old vines. It takes about 3 years for a vine to mature enough that it can produce fruit of proper quality for winemaking.
Ashleigh thoroughly enjoyed this first hand experience and fully agrees that picking grapes is back breaking work. It’s alway fun to take part in different roles of the wine journey, from vine to bottle as it helps you truly appreciate all the hard work producers put into each and every bottle.

St Julian, a stunningly beautiful part of the wine world. Set just off the river banks of the river Gironde which splits Bordeaux into it’s left and right banks. Cabernet Sauvignon and Franc with Merlot are the varieties used here sat on a top layer of gravel with clay and limestone soil. Intense and complex, notes of blueberry, blackcurrant, blackberry, plum, tobacco, and liquorice. Also powerful and opulent, wines with very fine, velvety tannins.
The Leoville Barton story starts in 1725 when Thomas Barton arrived in Bordeaux at the port and developed an interest in producing wine to that of being a merchant. He made a very successful business, with strong trade links back to his home country of Ireland and began to build and create a family, one that remains the longest standing of all the 1855 Grand Cru Classes.
The 1855 classification was initially established at the request of Emperor Napoleon III with the aim of presenting the wines of the Gironde at the Universal Exhibition of Paris. The responsibility of writing the classification was given by the Bordeaux Chamber of Commerce to the Association of Trade Merchants of the Bordeaux Stock Exchange. Its mission was to devise an official classification based on many years of experience and according to the quality of the Terroir and the reputation of each Château. The Classification was published on the 18th April 1855.
The grapes in the beautiful vineyards of St Julien are hand harvested early on and after de-stemming, the berries are carefully sorted, crushed and poured in wooden vats thermo-regulated, according to their plots.  The maceration process takes about 3 weeks then the juice is drawn in barrels.. The wine is then aged between 16 and 18 months in French oak barrels.
This 2017 vintage is composed of 72% Cabernet Sauvignon, 23% Merlot and 5% Cabernet Franc. Dense garnet colour. Nose of black fruits, liquorice, hint of fresh hazelnuts, delicately woody. The attack is subtle and the tannins silky. The palate develops notes of black fruits, blackcurrant.

Beer has been brewed at the same location in Southwold for at least 670 years. The earliest record dates back to 1345 when 18 people were charged with serving illegal measures. Fast forward to 1872 and brothers George and Ernest Adnams brought the brewery. 1880 saw the Adnams Tally Ho beer be brewed and also George Adnams apparently eaten by a crocodile whilst on a trip to South Africa. !0 years on and Adnams Co. was established and the beginning of the next chapter in the Adnams story.  
Here we have the Adnams Southwold Bitter, one of the many beers and bitters they do. First brewed in 1967, under the name Adnams Best Bitter, Southwold Bitter holds Adnams oldest trademark. a beautiful copper coloured beer, late hopped to give a lingering hopped flavour and also well balanced making it an ideal session beer.

Just £1.40 a bottle, so £16.80 a 12 pack case it's a great price to stock up.

NEW NEW!

Pringle Bay is different from other Savvy B's because Sauvignon specialists Duncan Savage and Thys Louw source most of their grapes from coastal spots that are cooled by Atlantic breezes. The rest comes from Paardeberg, which is renowned for its tropical fruit flavours.

Grapes are harvested between the hours of 1am and before 9am as the cooler temperatures help on many different fronts. It means all the grapes are picked at a same consistent temperature so you have better control over the fermentation process. Sugar levels are at a more stable level plus the works prefer it to picking in the heat of the day.

All combined this creates a wonderfully fresh wine, with notes of passion fruit, pineapple and gooseberries. Finished off with a long, soft refreshing finish.

Works wonders with fish and chips and the afternoon sun.

They say that Adelaide's drinking water is some of the worst in the civilised world, but boy, their wines are a delight!

Forget everything you know about Sauvignon Blanc from their Kiwi neighbours across the water, Shaw + Smith have been making Sauvignon in Australia's Adelaide Hills for 30 years, it's their flagship wine.

Their hand-picked grapes are aged on texture-imparting lees for extra body and depth of flavour. Expect bright herbaceous aromas of freshly-cut grass and zippy pink grapefruit.

Serve chilled to the core with smoked salmon bagels - sunshine optional.

It's not Chile today!

Medalla Real Gran Reserva Cabernet Sauvignon is a hidden gem at unrivaled price this week. From the Maipo Valley. The Maipo Valley is the home of viticulture in Chile. The first vines were planted around Santiago at the city's birth in the 1540s, but it wasn't until the 1800s that viticulture began to expand significantly. The region can be roughly separated into three broad areas: Alto Maipo, Central Maipo and Maipo Bajo. Annual rainfall in Maipo is very low and the climate is both warm and dry, so the arrival of technological advances in the 1980s brought an element of consistency to winemaking here. Drip irrigation gives viticulturists a weapon against extended dry spells, while stainless-steel tanks and oak barrels allow controlled fermentation and quality ageing.

This Cabernet Sauvignon has a deep and bright ruby-red colour. The concentrated body is rich and ripe in almost sweet tannins. It's fragrant aroma evokes blackcurrant and mocha with notes of vanilla and oak from the 14 months of oak ageing.

Still riding this Cabernet Train to Glass Town.

Chronic Cellar is a fun Winery, with the story starting back in 2004 when Josh and Jack Beckett combined their winemaking skills with their wit and humour to create wines that definitely look the part. Kip Lorenzetti is the wine maker and over the course of his decade long winemaking career he's become a specialist in California's Central Coast. Going by the few wines we've tasted. He knows his stuff. The Sir Real Cabernet really packs a punch, delivering striking layers of black fruit with a sliver of toasted spice. Ripe plum, and a bright cassis lead the way to a rich structured tannin.

Next up is Bread and Butter, not to be confused with the pudding, are based in Napa Valley. One of the golden zones for North American wine. Winemaker Linda Trotta believes that "A good wine is a wine you like" and we agree with that. The simplicity of B+B wines is the reason why they've become so popular so quickly! Their Cabernet Sauvignon is no doubt, a Cabernet Sauvignon. This robust wine charms layers of fresh berries, blackcurrant with a slight toasted oak and brush of rich vanilla. Paired with the soft tannins you get a simple but effectively smooth wine. As they say, "Don't over think it".

ITS NATIONAL CABERNET SAUVIGNON DAY!!!!

We have a wonderful selection of Cab Sauvs to celebrate today! Cabernet Sauvignon is one of the world's most widely recognized red wine grape varieties. It is grown in nearly every major wine producing country among a diverse spectrum of climates. Originating from Southern France, Cabernet is the product of a chance crossing between Cabernet Franc and Sauvignon blanc.

The classic profile of Cabernet Sauvignon tends to be full-bodied wines with high tannins and noticeable acidity that contributes to the wine's aging potential. In cooler climates, Cabernet Sauvignon tends to produce wines with blackcurrant notes that can be accompanied by green bell pepper notes, mint and cedar which will all become more pronounced as the wine ages. In more moderate climates the black currant notes are often seen with black cherry and black olive notes while in very hot climates the currant flavors can veer towards the over-ripe and jammy side. In parts of Australia, particularly the Coonawarra wine region of South Australia, Cabernet Sauvignon wines tend to have characteristic eucalyptus or menthol notes.

Some of our favourites are the Medalla Real Gran Reserva, Bread and Butter, Robert Oatley, Chronic Cellars Sir Real and the Wynn's Coonawarra Cabernets.

Enjoy a glass tonight and celebrate all the wonders that this well known grape variety gives us!
